Many businesses recognise the need to modernise their existing applications, making them more fit for today’s dynamic market environment. Applications need to be agile, secure and resilient. To accommodate future evolution and change, they must be scalable and flexible too.
In the digital age, they also need to provide the responsive and intuitive experience that customers expect. After all, research has shown that 78% of end users won’t return to a slow website, while 38% won’t come back if personalisation is poor.*
Effective, modernised applications are likely to encompass a number of features: cloud native, fully integrated, with a modernised user interface and incremental emerging technology capabilities.
App modernisation is more than just an update – but at the same time, it doesn’t have to mean that old applications are completely replaced. Through NashTech’s established methodology, which our teams have applied widely to clients around the world, there are modernisation options that gradually implement an effective upgrading journey and bring significant value to the business.
In fact, a wide range of possibilities can be discussed and explored, from encapsulating existing applications and making them available as services – right through to replacing them by building from the ground up:
